Most of the songs on this album were written on a classical guitar, hence the many arpeggios. All the titles are women’s names because, well they’re just pretty names aren’t they?

The idea was to be more organic while maintaining an electronic feel. In this album, more real instruments were introduced and fewer effects were added. Although a few songs have repetitive lyrics, each song has character. Overall, there was no intention to communicate a unique message. Where the statements in Illusionism seem to end with question marks, the messages in this album are shouted out with confidence, sometimes arrogantly.

Marta
Like, I will say.
I will be.
I will see.
I will play
what I want,
what I think.
What I have
without you,
I will sing,
I will run,
I will scream.
I will love
what I am,
what I do,
what I see,
what I think.
What I think I’m gonna do is run around,
then I think I’m gonna fool around.
Hey whatcha ya gonna say, whatcha gonna say, hey
hey whatcha ya gonna say…think you’re gonna say it’s ok
and then say no? Well I say, hey take a look at me
take a look at me right now.

And so it’s like Sunday morning, and I wake up…and she’s sitting there on the side of the bed. I look at her and I say, “I love ya.”
She says, “Listen I’m going home.”
I go, “Oh alright, when are you coming back?”
She says, “No, I’m not coming back.”

(right)
I’m in the hospital, and I’ve been waiting like 4 hours for a doctor, and I get this call, and it’s my dad, and he says, “Me and your mom are separating.”

Cristina
Once upon a time there was a boy, a boy who had a dream of someone else that he would find and have as his companion through all the hard times, and once upon a time there was a girl, a girl who dreamed of a mystery man that would keep her as young as she could be without it showing in her smile.

Then the day came that they found themselves passing by the very same place they once lived. Side by side, one by one, he realized it was her all along.

She’s the right one yeah,
the right one yeah,
the right one.
She’s the right one.
She could not bare to believe that he, the man who stood in front of her could be the one that would make her feel free, if he could not afford even to eat.
She walked away, and so remains a mystery of who this man could be.

Stella
Too much to say,
I can’t find the way
to have what I want,
to be what I want,
and think of the word…
the magical word
to bring on to me
happiness you see.
To much to say,
then she ran away
to give it away
to one who would make
her feel like a fake.
The image that goes,
the right way to pose…
the people she knows.
She’s never gonna see me crying.
She’s never gonna know I’m lying.
She’s never gonna see me dying.
She’s never gonna know I’m hiding.
She drops the gun,
she’s never gonna run
and he’ll take away
her right to forgive him.
Too much to say.
Now, another day
to see what I can
and make up a plan,
to have what to me
can only come free.
The distance I walk,
the people that talk,
the reason I am,
the reason I can,
the image I want,
memories that haunt,
the girl that I have,
the love one should have…
Erin
Here we go once again,
kill the many and more of men.
Take the gold, walk away,
hope they don’t remember the day
that we took money and
dignity from the men and land.
Needed it.
Justified.
This is how we will sleep tonight.
Here we go once again,
burn the village and hang the men.
Take the gold and women,
let a child say what happened
to others scared and weak…
dare they even try to speak.
Pagan life.
Justified.
This is how I will sleep tonight.
They will come right back at you
with a vengeance as strong as
the poison you fed them but
don’t scream, don’t beg, it’s too late.
Here we go once again,
spare the women and pay the men.
Plant the seed and watch it grow,
keep them silent and keep a flow.
Day by day, year by year
people won’t even know what to fear.
Ignorance.
Justified.
This is how I will sleep tonight.
They will come right back at you
with a vengeance as strong as
the poison you fed them but
don’t scream, don’t beg, it’s too late.
They will come back with their guns.
1 million aimed right at you.
The dead of all kinds of men…
don’t run, don’t scream, don’t beg them.
Grace
There is a place I know about,
I’ve seen, I’ve touched, and spoken of.
The air you breathe, the land, the sea,
people you meet, alas…I’m here.
I can’t be here, I can’t be there,
you tell me when, all this will end.
The thing about this place is that
you cannot move while you’re there.
You can’t go back, and can’t forget,
about the world that lies out there.
A land of peace, tranquility,
and far from eyes, that spy.
Karin
She, the one, the one that I
can’t believe, believe that I
have, now had, in front of me.
Now every day that passes by
and every tick talk ticking by…
She, the girl, the girl that I
love, and loved, and locked away
far, so far, so far away.
Now every day that passes by
and every tick talk ticking by.
You, with the answers to my questions,
tell me why. tell, me why I am…
waiting for the moment I might be with her again.
Silhouette of a girl, an image I’ve seen before.
Waiting for a sign from her that says I’ll see her again.
Silhouette of a woman, I think I’ve seen this before.
You, with the answers to my questions, tell me when.
I will see her again.
Zelda
You and me, we’re gonna get a call to go see
the one, the gods that I profited from,
and then they’re gonna ask what I’ve become.
“A god among those insects that hate, despise.”
And then they’re gonna turn around to the next,
and ask the same…”What about you?”
Never give up, never gonna….never give up.
